Jim & Steve on the Eastern Front

Jim's Guard Tankovy v. Steve's Schwere Panzer

1750 pts Late War Breakthrough on 6x4, German's attacking (on the LWE Monday).

The Russians had 1 Strelk in a long line across the table, 2 KV85 platoons, 1 on table & 1 in reserve, plus Katies deployed as far back as possible.& KV85's.
The Germans had 2 KT's, AA Ht's & artillery on table, Armoured Panzergrens & 2 Tigers in flank attack.

The KT's attacked the Strelk with support from the AAHT's & artillery while the Russians deployed their armour to meet the flank attack.  The KT's broke thru onto the the hill & a game of cat & mouse ensued as the Russians tried to get their tanks in flank while the Germans used Stormtrooper to avoid it.  The Strelk were pulled back & a combined attack of Strelk & KVs did get a KT, but at great cost. 

The flank attack came on was met by KV's & a shoot out ensued.  The Tigers died but so did the KV's leaving the Germans with the objective.  Then we realised that the Germans should have tested army morale first.
